Hello there, many faults will cause your 2008 BMW X5 to not start. Since you’ve recently replaced the battery, a few possible causes would include the starter, battery cables, battery terminals, ignition switch, or a wiring harness fault. To have this taken care of, I recommend having an expert from YourMechanic diagnose your starting issue at your car’s location in order to address this correctly.
